Get ready to roll your eyes, gang, 'cause this thread is nothing more than an excuse to toot my own horn. The Vegas first I'm celebrating is... This will be my first Vegas trip (of 41) where I will be staying in a non-smoking room! Yep, after 23+ years of worshiping at the alter of Phillip Morris, I am now nearly six weeks removed from lighting up. I'm not off nicotine yet. I still chew one or two pieces of nicotine gum each day and puff on an e-cig occasionally. But dammit, I'm proud of myself - this is the longest I've gone without a cig in...well, probably 23+ years (despite dozens of attempts). I'm fairly confident that I'll be okay during my Vegas trip in two weeks. I'm sure I'll be tempted plenty. But I think I can handle it (knock on wood). I've managed to deal with some stressful situations as well as some nights of heavy drinking without breaking down so far. But I know Vegas will be quite a challenge. Where else is smoking so prevalent in public? Not to mention all the booze, food and gambling-induced anxiety. Anyway, this thread really isn't ALL about braggadocio. I'm actually hoping that by telling you all this, I'll be able to add "shame" to my lists of reasons I don't want to relapse! And I'm also sure that there are plenty of you guys who've been in this situation before... Any suggestions, tips, hints, etc for dealing with Vegas as a newly minted non-smoker?
